Persecution

Persecution is not an original feature in any religion; but it is always the strongly marked feature of all religions established by law.

— Thomas Paine

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so, and will follow it by suppressing opposition, subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young, and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.

— Robert A. Heinlein, Postscript to Revolt in 2100
